As we recap 2021 we're happy to say it's been a successful year science-wise despite the on-going pandemic. The AMC chair is very proud about a total of 43 publications, 5 PhD dissertations, 5 completed Master Thesis', 7 new PhD candidates, and a new sub group within the chair (AK Halter). Additionally, Prof. Fischer celebrated his 60th birthday this year with a small hike in the Bavarian Alps - see the photo!
In terms of research, the Fischer group continues to expand its range of chemical disciplines with insights into a wide variety of topics from MOF lithography (Nat. Mater.), semi-hydrogenation with Pd nanoparticles (ChemCatChem), configurational entropy (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed.), non-linear optical building blocks (Dyes Pigm.), confinement effects (ChemCatChem), MOF defect engineering (Catal. Sci. Technol.), advanced SURMOF fabrication and detection techniques (Adv. Mater., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., Adv. Mater.), pyrolysis (Microporous Mesoporous Mater.), electrically conductive MOFs (Chem. Mater.), organometallic cluster studies and detection methods (Chem. Sci., Dalton Trans.), photocatalytic CO2 reduction (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed.), MOF-encapsulated clusters (Mol. Syst. Des. Eng.), vectorial catalysis (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed.), and - last but not least - new MOF linker design (Inorg. Chem.). With such breadth of research, there's always something new to discover and exciting ideas to discuss in the lab. If you're interested to join us in the coming year, please reach out to the respective PI(s).
We're excited to see what the next year brings and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! :)
